Solsbury Hill
Erasure Lyrics


Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night

He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
I had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
Just had to trust imagination
My heart was going boom boom, boom
"Son," he said, "Grab your things, I've come to take you home."

To keeping silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut

So I went from day to day
Tho' my life was in a rut
'Till I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut

I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart was going boom boom boom
"Hey," he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home."
Yeah back home

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free

Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes, but still can see
No one taught them etiquette
I will show another me

Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart was going boom boom boom
"Hey," I said, "You can keep my things, they've come to take me home."

Fantastic cover. Andy Bell has such a unique voice that after hearing just a few words you know its him. He's up their with the likes of David Bowie, George Michael, Tom Jones and Peter Gabriel to name but a few.

Erasure's music is timeless. Never boring.

This man has one of the strongest voice and opened my eyes to the other world and my respect and love for all just became one.. gay or not gay who cares as we all love the same way.. love the music and this band is one of my all time favorites,...

Andy Howl

Now I'm straight but seriously some of the most down to earth friends I've had were gay or lesbian! They respected me for me and I for them! Who you love doesnt matter! It's how you hold yourself that counts! In all walks of life!

Love...brother

Brilliant! I was an eighties teenager and erasure helped make it the greatest decade for pop music...

Bee Whistler

Can’t agree with the 80s being the greatest for pop... I grew up then, too, and a lot of pop was absolute trash. Erasure is one of the bands that proves it wasn’t all bad. Every decade has stuff that sucks.

Glen Evans Burns

Elton performed elegantly and flamboyant in the 70s yeah I was a gay teen loved erasure
Seems like someone’s insecure about there sexuality there nothing wrong with the way Andy dressed anyhow I focus mostly on his music I’m now 48 luv erasure ✌🏻 🌈
